The great Vincent D'Onofrio and life after "Criminal Intent"

Impre.com, 7.26.11
By David Lara

He delighted the audience for ten years. Now this tv show it is over, but the career of this human chameleon goes on.

Robert Goren is a very complex tv character, one that only a multi-talented actor could represent on screen. Vincent D'Onofrio embodied him for 10 years and got a whole audience wondering: why this amazing performer has never gotten any major acting award?

We all know of course that award ceremonies often have little to do with true talent and a lot with Hollywood connections. Mr. D'Onofrio seems nonchalant about it, better focusing on giving the best of him with every new role.

His "Law & Order" partner in crime, Kathryn Erbe, seems to follow the same philosophy: she's an extraordinary actress as proved by many films and tv appearences through her career. And when we watch Vincent D'Onofrio and Miss Kathryn together solving the most atrocious crimes and major cases, is like seeing an Ella Fitzgerald & Frank Sinatra duet: two of the best ever in one scene and one stage.

One movie in particular speaks volumes of D'Onofrio's talent and passioned delivery: Dan Ireland's A Whole Wide World (1996). He and ReneƩ Zellweger gave their best to play Robert Howard and Novalyne Price. The legendary love story of the famous Pulp Fiction writer and Miss Novalyne took a new meaning through this movie. D'Onofrio was able to bring tears to our eyes and smiles to our faces at the same time. Superb indeed.

Vincent D'Onofrio is now involved in two different movie projects one of those starring alongside Bruce Willis. We wish him nothing but good luck and Alexandra Eames' final line to him in Criminal Intent's "Loyalty" episode says it best: "You are the best Bobby... and you'll always be".

We agree Eames.
